Highlands Ranch, Colorado cyclist killed - Any news?sacheson

I just heard a rumor that a cyclist was killed 11/11/2002 on Highland's Ranch parkway. I can't find anything on local news channel or newspaper web sites, and am wondering if anyone has any information.

Horrible, horrible news.

For those who know, HR Pkwy (to my knowledge) has an ample bike lane. Any loss is horrible, this is absurd.
Hmmm, SUV driver again. (nm)Spunout

No way the cyclist might have done something stoopid? Something I see it all the time.

The guy hasn't been proven guilty ... I read that a) it's horrible that a life has been lost and b) the frequency of these things happening when an SUV is involved is rather high.

Maybe the percentage of accidents involving SUVs is high, because the percentage of SUVs on the road is high?

Wait for the facts before assigning blame.
commute along there sometimes..dotkaye

there's 6 lanes for traffic and a good bike lane in both directions. It's not usually very busy, though most drivers significantly exceed the supposed 45mph limit. Always thought that was one of the safer roads.. hum.
